Project short description

The goal of this project is to re-design MRT's currently used Ball Detection algorithm in order to allow the detection of a generic FIFA ball and its tracking. Ball Detection will be done using the Generalized Hough Transform, while its 3D tracking will use an Extend Kalaman Filter.

Laboratory work and risk analysis

Laboratory work for this project will be probably performed at AIRLab/Bovisa. It will include significant amounts of testing on real robots. Potentially risky activities are the following:

  • Transportation of heavy loads (e.g. robots). Standard safety measures described in Safety norms will be followed.
  • Robot testing. Standard safety measures described in Safety norms will be followed.
